Trish and Dalton Case of Denham Springs, La., traveled to Spartanburg for the weekend to watch her daughter Brittany, a junior left fielder for USC Upstate, play softball.
They had planned to hold a “Low Country Boil” and feed the team and their families fresh crawfish after the final game of a three-game series against Florida Gulf Coast on Saturday afternoon.
But the trailer with their stainless steel cooker, three coolers, 160 pounds of crawfish, 30 pounds of sausages and 30 pounds of corn was discovered stolen Saturday morning from where it was parked at the Hampton Inn on Traveller Drive.
The last time the locked trailer was seen was about 10 p.m. Friday, Dalton Case told sheriff’s deputies.
Deputies said the hotel’s security cameras recorded a silver SUV back up, hook up and then drive off with the trailer shortly after 5 a.m. Saturday, but the license plate could not be seen.
On Sunday, Trish Case said she never imagined that the trailer, which had been used for previous cookouts after games, would be stolen.
“I’m sure the man thought he was getting a bunch of tools and equipment,” she said.
But the party went on as planned Saturday afternoon after the game, she said, in celebration of having won the series with a conference foe.
They ordered pizza.
“We had to make lemonade after lemons,” she said.
She obtained a photo of the SUV and posted it on her Facebook page in hopes someone can recognize it and report it to the sheriff’s office.
“Somebody needs to be held accountable,” she said.

SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
A trailer filled with food for the USC Upstate softball team was stolen in Spartanburg County on Saturday.
Deputies said the trailer was stolen from the parking lot of the Hampton Inn on Traveller Drive. The sheriff's office said security footage showed a silver SUV hook up the trailer and drive away with it.
Trish Case, owner of the trailer, said it was filled with food for a low country boil for the USC Upstate softball team after their games on Saturday. Case's daughter plays for the team.
"Obviously, everyone was very upset. This is something they look forward to the entire time. The entire season we wait for this weekend. They are handling it well. We ordered pizza and we're playing cornhole still and hanging out as a team. It's all about family," Case said.
According to the incident report, 160 pounds of crawfish, 30 pounds of sausages, and 30 pounds of corn were in the trailer when it was stolen.
No suspects have been identified in the case.
South Carolina Is NUMBER 1 In the entire United States on Stolen Trailers Yet Another Stolen trailer. The American Citizens who travel into South Carolina are never made aware that their trailer's can be stolen....then their tags from other states taken off and then the thieves are allowed to tow their stolen trailer anywhere in the Entire State Of South Carolina and never get pulled over.
It's legal to tow a trailer and never have any tags on it! It's Sinister...and it's wrong.
The reality is that the State of South Carolina is somewhat complicit in inflicting damage to these good hearted folk and budding entrepreneurs. South Carolina chooses not to title trailers meaning very few have license plates attached …. Or even a means for law enforcement officers to make effective inquiry of the various computerized lookouts / wants for stolen property. Think about it … as a Highway Patrolman on I-95 coming behind a utility trailer headed to a flea market in Florida to sell “stuff”, there is no method WHATSOEVER for that officer to make a computerized inquiry to establish reasonable cause which leads to probable cause and an arrest / recovery. YOU ALL hamstring law enforcement inflicting further harm on your residents.
And people who stay and visit South Carolina.

Thief robs Upstate college softball team of Easter tradition
A trailer theft disrupted an annual Easter tradition at USC Upstate
SPARTANBURG, S.C. —
An Upstate softball team with a winning tradition must deal with a different kind of loss that was caught on camera. USC Upstate softball holds an annual Easter tradition. The winners of the last five Atlantic Sun Conference championships usually hold a crawfish boil, courtesy Brittany Case's family.
"I’m a true Cajun at heart," Case said. "That’s the thing about Louisiana. Once you’re there, it sticks with you forever. It just started out small, and it turned into a big tradition here."
The junior left fielder from Baton Rouge planned to bring a taste of Cajun country to the Upstate. However, plans changed when a driver stole the trailer carrying nearly $9,000 worth of ingredients and materials.
Surveillance video from the Hampton Inn off Chesnee Highway shows a truck backing up to a white trailer and taking off.
"It was clear as day on the video," Case said. "They back in like it was theirs, hooked up and they were gone."
Case said the trailer theft upset a lot of players and coaches, because the traditional crawfish boil brought the team together during the Easter holiday. Despite the team's latest loss, Case has hope law enforcement will catch the thief.
"They will get caught, because there are a lot of people who are upset about it," Case said. "It’s not even to catch them to get what was ours back, because at this point, that’s already gone. It’s to prevent it from happening to someone else. I don’t think this person knew when they were taking that what that meant to us."
Anyone with information on the theft should call the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office.
